Burlesque King
Morton Minsky

New York — Morton
Minsky, whose family made
burlesque an institution, died
Monday in New York. He
was 85.
In the 1920s and 30s the
four Minsky brothers owned
a string of burlesque houses
in New York and elsewhere
which featured strippers like
Gypsy Rose Lee and helped
comics like Phil Silvers and
Abbott and Costello get their
start.
New York Mayor Fiorello
H. LaGuardia ordered the
burlesque houses closed in
1937. Before a House com-
mittee that same year, Mr.
Minsky and his brother, Her-
bert, testified that "stripping"
was a typically American art,
whose practitioners required
rigorous training.
Mr. Minsky is survived by
his wife, Ruth Goldstein
Minsky.

Oil Found
In Negev

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel
struck oil March 15, but not
enough to strike it rich. The
energy ministry announced
that a small but commercial
quantity was discovered in
the Negev.
The gusher, known as Well
29 in the Kochav field about
15 kilometers southeast of
Ashkelon, is expected to pro-
duce about 100 barrels a day
from a depth of about 1,600
feet. Oil geologists believe
the well holds oil pockets at
three different levels.
Energy Minister Moshe
Shahal said on a Voice of Is-
rael Radio interview that he
still pins his hopes on an-
other oil field, the Agur near
Nitzana, which is operated by
the Armand Hammer group.
Israel has been prospecting
for oil almost since the state
was founded.
So far, its finds have been
marginal compared to the
country's needs. Israel pre-
sently buys most of its oil
from Egypt.
